For Educational Opportunities view our Calendar or our Events Page

Perianesthesia nursing encompasses preoperative/preprocedural care, postoperative/post-procedural care, or extended recovery in hospitals, surgery centers, pain clinics, GI clinics, or office-based practices. Our education committee is focused on providing seminars where expert speakers present new knowledge on surgical procedures, patient management, or anesthesia techniques based on needs assessments from participants.  Through these educational seminars, AzPANA offers contact hours  provided through the American Society of PeriAnesthesia Nursing (ASPAN). ASPAN is the organization responsible for the standards in perianesthesia nursing.
